Whenever I try to start my computer I get a BSoD a second or two after the Windows splash screen appears. The BSoD happens whether I choose safe mode or not. The stop error I get is STOP:0x00000024 (0x001902FE,0xF620B380,0XF620B07C,0xFCB30805) The STOP message troubleshooter says that the problem can be caused by disc corruption or disc fragmentation. I suspect that disc fragmentation might be the cause since I recently downloaded about 20 gigs worth of files, which brings me down to about 26 gigs free out of a total of 250 Gigs, and haven't defragmented in a while. I've tried going into the recovery prompt and using chkdsk /R, but although it reports having found errors, I still get the same problems. I'm using XP Pro SP2 32 bit AMD X2 Dual Core 4200+ 2.2?GHz, GeForce 8600 GT, KN1 SLi Lite motherboard Maxtor 6L250S0 250GB SATA Hard Drive 4Gb RAM (3.25Gb since I'm using XP) And I'm afraid I can't run any utilities on the computer beyond the recovery console since I can't get past the windows splash screen. Since fragmenting seems to me to be the most likely problem, does anyone know if it's possible to delete files from the recovery console, or otherwise, how to defragment the disc without being in Windows? I'm pretty sure you can't mess with anything other than system files while in the recovery console, which really enrages me. Otherwise, does anyone have any other suggestions of what might be the problem?
